Get to touch, feel and experience the hairdos, which were exhibited at the ramps of Milan, Paris, London and New York, right here in Chennai.
Bewitching! The display of magnetic hairdos at Schwarzkopf essential looks’ 13 , had the audience stuck to their seats like iron chips. With each new look displayed at the launch of its new colour range – Igora Royal, there was an arousal of consciousness among women as they tousled and stroke their locks, only to feel the lack of something – the colours.
Crisp reds, stunning chocolates and vivid blonds gave that elfish touch to the hair that fell obediently, forming a neat curtain before the eyes. You are almost tempted to part it along the radiant highlights, but restrain yourself in the fear of destroying that beautiful symmetry that could give an inferiority complex to geometry in itself.
Monomodes – the first hair design in the Colour buzz collection was on display at the Leela Palace. The crowd wasn’t prepared for this. Their seats rattled and soon they were teleported into the sixties, shaking hands with the ground breaking designers such as Pierre Cardin and Marrie Quaint. The clean cuts, the smooth transition of colours and the neat tapering at the back was almost like an ode to the 60s vibe. The copper pastel colours alternating between shades of brown and bronze made one’s hair seem like a perpetual ‘crowning glory’, as top model, Lisa Hayden, present among the crowd, put it.
A silent mutiny to the symmetry of monomodes, was the next — white angles. Like the pleats in a Kimono and the precision folds done in origami, the cuts looked sculptured — straight and neat. A triangular A-shaped-pattern at the back, red longer locks in the front, violet shorter locks in the right – disorientated yet organised, it seemed like a puzzle yet to be fixed.
Forget the 60’s, forget the Japanese. Talk about the modern luxe. The glam chic look had you loose your eccentricity, letting you blend in and still stand out. The strong red highlights were hidden with an interplay of urban and bage colours that darken at the top and lighten a bit to form the curls at the end, like the winding threads of a gold yarn.
‘If my mama likes the look, it’s not the look I want’ — this defines electric youth. Dishevelled and rebellious, the cuts were tailored by chaotic chopping, with no rules what-so-ever. Not glamorous or shiny, the pastel colours on bold fringes and randomly taken sections was a conscious effort in creating a devil maker look. Well, a hair cut is not like a helmet, anyways.
The four new trends had their own set of crowd. If you had your hair-fetish voice within you raising to get one on yourself, let it dominate your heart voice for once.
